ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - A year ago at this time, Denver Broncos safety Rahim Moore was dealing with the emotional scars of having allowed Jacoby Jones' game-turning touchdown in the playoffs.
He used it as fodder for a spectacular 2013 season, one which ended in November with a rare muscle condition.
Now, it's a physical scar that serves as his motivation.
Jagged and thick, it runs 13 inches down his left calf, a constant reminder of that night six months ago when his decision to go to the hospital in the middle of the night saved not only his NFL career but also his leg and potentially his life.
